WikiLeaks' streak in releasing private documents and emails took a pause Monday.

The website's controversial founder, Julian Assange, had promised 10 weeks of revelations leading up to Election Day in the US, to commemorate the site's 10th anniversary. But on Monday, WikiLeaks tweeted that Assange's internet access had been "severed by a state party."

We also talked about the Samsung reportedly testing its explosive Galaxy Note 7 batteries in-house instead of opting for a third-party facility, as well as the budding technology behind the ever-growing marijuana industry.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and producer Bryan VanGelder.
